  2. Right now, i'm into "Color Coordination"! I'm mixing lots of DIFFERENT colors which i thought it wouldn't match, but getting ideas from somebody's t-shirts, etc. whom i saw in the cafe, restaurant, etc. yes, i'm doing lots of "observing colors" on People's clothes in public lately! LOL :-)

  3. I've been using a technique often taught in elementary school--the collage. This technique allows me to use a lot of pictures that would normally get left in the storage box. I primarily use pictures, but stickers and other embellishments can also be used.

  5. My favorite thing is to layer different patterned papers when making my LOs and cards! I love the look of this! Besides this, I'm finding myself doing a lot more stamping, especially on my cards.

  14. I'm right now working on card kits which I love. The kits have all the materials. They use layering of papers, chipboard, rub-ons and you have to do some drawing of lines and dashes. I learn to do different layouts.

  15. Thanks for the opportunity to win a $25.00 gift certificate! I posted this in the wrong place the first time, sorry for the repeat for those that read it already on the other blog.

    My most recent projects involve my new cricut expressions. I love it! I use the cricut to make 3D stickers and embellishments with the Sure Cuts Alot program. Cricut Studio can do this too, I just like having access to all my computer fonts and svg files. I can now create anything I need for my scrapbook pages and the best part is they can be any size to fit my scrapbook page. It has also given me great ideas for making Christmas cards for next year and for my boys school projects.
    It is so easy once you get the knack of sizing them and then putting them together! Maybe other users have already been doing this for some time, but I thought I'd mention it as it is a thrill to me!

    Happy Scrapbooking day!
